The Shafi'i jurist Imam Ghazali said one must make du'a in such a prostration in a manner befitting the meaning of the verse in relation to which he is prostrating although it is permissible to read the tasbih or various duas.
كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَهِ -صَلَّى اللَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ- يَقُولُ فِي سُجُودِ الْقُرْآنِ بِاللَّيْلِ: « سَجَدَ وَجْهِي لِلَّذِي خَلَقَهُ، وَشَقَّ سَمْعَهُ وَبَصَرَهُ، بِحَوْلِهِ وَقُوَّتِهِ
Aisha (ra) narrated the Messenger of God (saw) used to say in the prostration of the Qur'an at night, "My face prostrated to the One who created him and models his hearing and sight with his power and strength." (Abu Dawud)
The Messenger (saw) supplicated, "O Allah, unto You I have prostrated and in You I have believed, and unto You I have submitted. My face has prostrated before Him Who created it and fashioned it, and brought forth its faculties of hearing and seeing by His Might and Power. Blessed is Allah, the Best of creators." (Tirmidhi; Hakim; Ahmed)
